How do I set passive mode and mirror questions... (2 posts)

We have several licensed copies of Fetch and right now I'm trying to set up a mirror. However, when the mirror connects it seems to be doing it in passive mode. The server won't allow it so the connecting just sits there and stalls. How do I change it to active mode? Also, how often is the files mirrored? I would like to set it to either a set schedule or every 10 minutes. Finally, if a .sit file is downloaded through mirroring will it automatically open after being downloaded.
I'd appreciate help ASAP.

You can uncheck the "Use passive mode transfers" box in the Firewalls section of Preferences. If you are using Mac OS X you'll also need to uncheck the "Use Internet Config" box in the General section.
You can use a script scheduler like the iDo scheduler included with Mac OS 9 to run a mirroring operation on a schedule; scheduling is not built into Fetch.
.sit files will be expanded if that's how your Post-processing options are set. Choose "Post-processing..." from the Customize menu to disable that behavior.
